Customer Question
and changed in error boot...
ok- asus laptop W8- by accident i went in boot/bios screen and changed in error boot order thinking I was fixing a weird screen I saw when I powered on. after I did my boot order change NOW I am unable to boot...you can push power and see lights on front quickly jump past the HDD and it just sits there blank. i have done everything i can find to fix to get my system to boot up. it is a used computer so no boot disc. i have drained battery, tried every key i have thought of (escape/delete/F1-F10, etc) when I power on and no luck. So what I need is to get this to someone to fix so I can use this laptop

Recharge battery and hold the delete key as soon as you turn it on. Keep holding it.

far- NO GO. I recharged the laptop as suggested, held down "delete" key and hit "power". briefly as it always does the HDD light came on along with power light on little icons on front of laptop but then as it always does, it goes dark. I continued to hold down continuously the "delete" key for 3 solid minutes (timed it) but it never booted to anything, screen remained dark. So any other suggestions? Remember I cannot get to a boot/ bios screen so I have no way to access boot/bios info .
Tech Support Specialist: CompDoc, Information Systems Manager replied 2 years ago

I apologize that I am out of suggestions. I would call Asus and ask for help. Even when out of warranty if you just ask the question they are pretty good in helping out.

Let me know if you would like me to opt out to see if someone else can help you.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
